Klay Thompson (sore heel/arch) torched the Kings on Wednesday for 35 points on 12-of-18 shooting, hitting 7-of-12 triples with five rebounds, four assists, two steals and zero turnovers.
Thompson wound up missing just one game with the injury and it seems like a pure precaution, so he shouldn't be limited during All-Star weekend. He drained his first five shots tonight and keyed the Warriors' game-changing run in the third quarter, and would have had an even bigger game if it weren't a blowout. He'll be busy this week as a participant in the All-Star game and as the defending champ in the 3-point shootout. Feb 16 - 1:27 AM

Date:

Klay Thompson (sore right heel) will play on Wednesday vs. the Kings.

After sitting out on Monday vs. the Nuggets, Thompson confirmed that his injury is a "minor thing" and it sounds like it was a maintenance day. Thompson's owners can go ahead and pencil him back into lineups, while we can expect to see Patrick McCaw return to the bench.

Klay Thompson (sore right heel) will not play on Monday vs. the Nuggets.

This sounds minor, but the Warriors are going to play it safe with the All-Star break coming up this weekend. For now, it's unclear if Thompson will play on Wednesday vs. the Kings. Patrick McCaw is a candidate to start in Thompson's absence, but he's not worth picking up in most season-long leagues for now. Andre Iguodala should be more involved and the rest of the starters should get a small bump.
Feb 13 - 1:56 PM

Klay Thompson scored 36 points against the Grizzlies on Friday, adding one rebound, three assists and eight 3-pointers.

It'll be one of the most overshadowed offensive gems of the season. His eight treys match his season high and this was his fourth 30-point game of the year. Thompson is having a monster February so far, averaging 28.0 points, 4.8 boards, 3.4 assists, 0.4 steals and 5.4 treys in those five games. He should get plenty of open looks with the Thunder focusing on Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry on Saturday night.
Feb 11 - 12:31 AM

Klay Thompson scored 28 points during a win over the Bulls on Wednesday, adding six rebounds, three assists and six 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

It was his 27th birthday and his 400th career start. He was away from the team to attend his grandfather’s funeral and made it back with plenty of time today. Thompson is also heating up over his last five, averaging 26.2 points, 5.8 boards, 3.2 assists and 4.2 treys. He’ll get a tough matchup against the Grizzlies on Saturday.
Feb 9 - 2:42 AM

Klay Thompson (personal) has returned to the team and he will play Wednesday vs. Chicago.

Thompson was away from the team for the past two days to attend his grandfather's funeral, but he'll be ready to go for tonight's matchup against the Bulls. Get him active.
Feb 8 - 2:05 PM

Klay Thompson (personal) will be away from the team for the next couple of days.

Thompson grandfather passed away, and he is away from the team to attend his funeral. The Dubs don't play until Wednesday, so maybe Thompson can return to the team in time for that one, but we're sure to get more than a few updates in the intervening days leading up to Wednesday's tip. We send our thoughts to Thompson and his family.
Feb 6 - 3:44 PM

Klay Thompson scored 26 points with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers in 43 minutes against the Kings on Saturday.

That's his fourth game in a row with more than 20 minutes to match his longest streak of the season. Thompson hasn't quite clicked as a fantasy asset with only sixth-round value in the last month. He'll likely be a little better than that, but there is almost no chance he'll be close to his second-round value like last season.
Feb 5 - 2:39 AM

Klay Thompson scored 29 points during a 126-111 rout of the Hornets, making 10-of-19 shots with six 3-pointers, eight assists, five rebounds, one steal and one block in 33 minutes.

Golden State drained nine 3-pointers in the first quarter alone, setting a franchise record, and they led the Hornets by 20 points after the barrage. Thompson has multiple 3-pointers in 10 straight games, and in that span he's also chipped in a combined 10 steals and seven blocks. He's cruising along as a mid-round value.
Feb 2 - 1:09 AM

Klay Thompson made a career-high 13-of-15 free throws on Sunday, scoring 27 points with two 3-pointers, six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block.

Thompson made just 6-of-21 field goals tonight, but made up for it at the line, and his offense was even more necessary with Stephen Curry sidelined by illness. He also played 35 minutes without a single turnover and his fantasy owners should hope that his offensive aggression carries over -- he's hitting 83.9 percent of his FT attempts this year, but gets to the line a mere 2.4 times per game.
Jan 29 - 11:59 PM

Klay Thompson scored 21 points on 7-of-14 shooting Sunday, to go with seven 3-pointers, five rebounds, one assist and three turnovers in 34 minutes.

Thompson torched Orlando from beyond the arc, scoring all 21 of his points from distance and missing just two of those nine attempts. This was also the second time the Splash Brothers each drained seven triples in the same game, a feat that no other pair of teammates has ever done more than once.
Jan 22 - 2:50 PM

Klay Thompson (personal) started Wednesday's game and finished with 14 points, five boards, three assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes of action.

Thompson's status was a roller-coaster throughout the day. He was initially ruled out after flying to Portland to be with his ill grandfather, but he was later deemed 'questionable' and then 'probable'. Thompson's stats this season are remarkably similar to last year, including an identical 17.3 shots per game, and he's still returning fourth-round value despite the surplus of talented scorers in Golden State.
Jan 19 - 1:38 AM

Klay Thompson (personal) has arrived at Oracle Arena and he will play vs. the Thunder.

Thompson flew back from Portland and he made it to the arena with enough time to ensure that he'll be in the starting lineup. Get him into your active lineups.
Jan 18 - 9:12 PM

Klay Thompson (personal) is a game-time call against the Thunder on Wednesday.

His plane landed at 5:40 local time, so he has almost two hours to get to the arena and play. Thompson will get some shots up before the game and see how he feels after that. For now, we are considering him as closer to probable.
Jan 18 - 9:01 PM

Klay Thompson (personal) flew to Portland to visit his ill grandfather today and intends to return to Bay Area to play against the Thunder on Wednesday night, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

Thompson has told general manager Bob Myers he could fly back in time for the game tonight, so Thompson looks like he's closer to probable for this game. If he isn't back in time, we'll see more Pat McCaw Ian Clark and Andre Iguodala could play more.
